Why are Americans more p***d about the Confederate flag being removed, than the KKK and their supporters using it as a racist symbol?

Hey Walt!!! My thought exactly. Who says the confederate flag is MORE objectionable then the KKK?

If the excuse to remove something ... anything ... is because it is used as a hate symbol by some group - - then we should remove white linens, because they can be used to make KKK robes & hoods. And remove all team logos, 'cause they can be used as gang wear. And remove all cowboy hats - so kids don't play "cowboys and indians". And cut off all index fingers, so people stop pointing at others (or making "gun" signs). And remove all middle fingers, so people stop "giving the bird".

My point being that anything can be used as a symbol of hate or oppression.

It's liberalism, intolerant progressive behavior...Anything to make a mountain out of a mole hill...or make it a distraction to something much more sinister going on.

Because a flag is a form of expression. The confederate flag has nothing to do with racism and too many people are trying to make it that.
